Reviews for 11 O'Clock Numbers at 11 O'Clock

"Bufford is the throbbing belter in the bunch, so she handles many of the songs that have big emotional punches. Her quiet notes are unassuming, but her strong, full-throated moments are exceptional. You know they're coming, so you sit tight as you wait for the thrill ride to begin. Bufford is a big singer in most every way. She has a wallop of a voice, a wide-stretching mouth, sweeping arm gestures. Her emotionality takes on operatic proportions, too, pushing her right to the edge of camp sometimes, as in "What Did I Have I Don't Have" (Alan Jay Lerner/Burton Lane) from On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. On the lines "Where can I go to repair/All the wear and the tear" she stretches out one hand with trembling fingers - like a jittery hophead from some 1950s Hollywood potboiler. She's a trip - a good one."

"Carole sang "Winner Takes It All" from Mamma Mia (Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus) with a starkness that gradually became explosively passionate and "What Did I Have That I Don't Have" from On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (Burton Lane/ Alan Jay Lerner) which was almost scathing in its intensity."
-Joel Benjamin, Theatrescene.net

"Carole J. Bufford's resonant "The Winner Takes All" ("Mamma Mia!") raised the roof and she proved she can showcased a song's theatricality with "What Did I Have?" from "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.""

"Newly Bistro Award-honored Carole J. Bufford belts and sasses...Solo highlights include Carole's all-stops-out "What Did I Have That I Don't Have?" (On a Clear Day You Can See Forever)"
-Rob Lester, Cabaret Scenes

"I've admired Bufford's work previously, but noted dynamic new strength projected in her numbers. She rendered a terrific "What Did I Have That I Don't Have?" from "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever." She did a rousing "The Winner Takes It All" from "Mamma Mia" and had fun with "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" from "Grease.""
